What a beautiful song!  Dottie can write them, can't she?

He didn't promise that I would never stumble,
But He did say He'd be there if I fall
He didn't tell me He'd hear complaints I whispered,
But He did say He'd hear me if I call.

Promises, promises, and all of them true.
He's done exactly what He said He would do.
He didn't promise my heart would not be broken,
But He did say He'd mend it again.

He didn't promise my cross would not be heavy,
But He did say that He my load would bear,
He didn't tell me He'd grant my hopes and wishes,
But He did say He'd hear my earnest prayer.

I grew up to this song. My mom sang it in church often and it has encouraged me through many difficult times in life.

We are studying God's promises in Sunday school and my husband thought back a few years to when we sang this song. We should all sing it every day.

I love this song, it always reminds me that God always keeps his promises.

Does anyone have the sheet music to this?  I have look everywhere for it.  I used to play it back i the 70's when I was with a southern gospel group...
